Thomas the Tank Engine - sexist beast?

This is just hilarious. It's not really worth getting bothered about unless someone actually listens to the woman and takes action.

If you thought the television tales about Thomas the Tank Engine were merely light-hearted fun, think again.
In fact, they portray a world blighted by a 'conservative political ideology' and a rigid class system which stifles self-expression. And they are sexist...According to Professor Shauna Wilton, women are under-represented in the stories and what few female characters there are tend to have 'secondary' roles or be bossy.

Watch bloody She-Ra, then. Silly bitch.

Unless she's too provocatively dressed and aggressive? Something of a role model for me, chaps.
